Positive.
1)Daniel Craig as James Bond you wouldn't want to take on his portrayal of 007 in a fight.
2)Javier Bardem As Silva at last a decent Bond villian to match Daniel Craig's James Bond.
3)Exellent action sequences directed by Sam Mendes.

Negative.
1)Silvas death is a complete cop out ending, An off camera knife in the back by 007 is a poor way to kill off a good villian.
2)Gunbarrel sequence again at the end of the movie instead of the begining why?

Trivia.

2)Naomi Harris is the 4th actress to play Miss Moneypenny, Lois Maxwell, Caroline Bliss & Samantha Bond being the other 3 actresses.
3)Skyfall marks a third consecutive different version of Daniel Craigs Gunbarrel sequence.
4)Judi Dench 7th consecutive apperance as "M".
5)This is only the second time 007 gets shot in the franchise the other movie he's shot in is Thunderball.

Review.
Daniel Craig's best Bond to date.

Craig delivers a James Bond that is closer to the Ian Fleming novels with his hard steely edge & a strong moral code of ethics to do his job to the best of his ability, Daniel Craig delivers another wonderful performance making his 007 slightly fallible.

Possibly my very favourite Bond film, Daniel Craig encapsulates the hero brilliantly. Set in glamorous Shanghai and misty Scotland, Skyfall is dramatic, heartfelt and action packed. Even if you don't like Bond, I bet you'll like Skyfall. And you'll have the theme song stuck in your head for days after.

Great plot, great acting, great everything!

I was gutted that I missed this at the cinema. The scenes in Scotland must have looked breath taking on the big screen. Having said that, I loved this film. Daniel Craig was his rough, tough, stylish best and the supporting cast was fab - loved the villain. And Severine looked so vulnerable ....two new surprises - Q and .... won't tell, it'll spoil it for those who haven't yet seen it!

One thing that often goes unnoticed in a film - the soundtrack - this one was fantastic. Intend to hunt it down on CD.

Another success IMO from the Bond stable - don't miss it!!

Enjoyable film as usual excellent opening action sequence. Craig is good and adds the intensity that many like to the Bond role. (he's starting to look a bit older here though)
I do think the film could have been trimmed down a bit or tightened up sequence wise. After the opening there is a bit too much non Bond stuff going on for my tastes, I've no problems with a bit of exploration and talking stuff... some call it getting to know the characters. You could chop 25-30 minutes off this and it would be improved for it.

1 hour and 7 mins in we finally see Javier Bardem, ala Silva the disgruntled ex agent complete with a nice blonde dye job (it does make him very unusual and menacing looking) Javier is superb as the bad guy in this film his presence is felt in every scene he is in (some humorous moments too "oooh Mr Bond chair scene is memorable!). It's just a shame we have to wait this long to get to him.

This Bond film is thin on the gadgets, and some say the better for it. I've no issues with the back to basics take, or the non rule the world plot. Yes it does make a change to have an ex agent theme for this movie. There are some good sequences, but for me it's only when Silva arrives we really get stuck into things (and that's a good half way into the movie). Ending wise I though a little bit basic for me. And the pace of the movie felt too stretched out; as above a good trip to the cutting room would have helped in a lot of ways.

Overall I enjoyed it and surprisingly for a Bond film it does benefit from a second viewing. For me a 4/5 film one of the better Bond movies..but die hard gadget and all action Bond fans might not appreciate the more leisurely pace of the film.

'Skyfall' beside the luscious music was one of my favorite Bond films. Daniel Craig has had to prove himself Bond worthy, and, now there is no reason not to hand him the mantle.

The film opens with Bond engaged in one dangerous locale after another. This is the start of something big right away. And,almost 20 mins in we are supposed to believe that Bond is taken out, no I don't think so. The decision to shoot Bond was made by M, played by the brillant Dame Judi Dench. She had no real choice, Bond was being used as a human shield, a split decision made by M. She was called on the carpet by Mallory, played by Ralph Fiennes, her new boss in MI6. She was writing Bond's obituary as she was herself was learning hers. Though M is not ready to retire, and,this film is hers as much as it is Bond's. M is a figure to revere and to love.

Javier Bardem, plays Silva, a bleached blonde computer wizard, and as he put Bond through his paces, I was reminded of the early days of 007, and how much he has become a part of our culture. Not just the Bond women, but the old timers like Judi Dench and those who have come and gone. We end up in Kincade's Scottish mansion. Albert Finney another oldie but goodie has things to say and places to go. And, the beautiful Aston Martin makes a reappearance. Not ready to say goid-bye, not at all.
